Please note: only the ingredient list has been updated, you will need to allow for different cooking times, temperatures and quantities in each step.
- 1 ½ cups spelt white flour (Plus more for dusting)
- oil spray (for the 8 1/2)
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons lemon zest (freshly grated. When in season, I use Meyer lemons)
- ¾ cup greek yogurt (whole milk)
- ½ cup vegetable oil (You can substitue for Agave Syrup, just decrease the 1 cup sugar for half a cup)
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat your oven to 175ºC / 350ºF / Gas Mark 4.
Lightly coat your loaf pan with the oil spray.
Dust the spelt white flour over the loaf pan and tap the excess out.
In a medium size bowl, sift the spelt white flour, baking powder and salt.
In a smaller bowl, add the sugar and lemon zest together.
Either using your fingers or a spoon mix the zest and sugar together until the sugar becomes moist from the zest and starts to clump together.
In a separate medium size bowl, add the yogurt, oil, eggs and vanilla and whisk until fully incorporated.
Add the lemon sugar to the yogurt mixture and mix well.
Fold in the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Do not over mix!
Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan.
Set in the middle of your oven and bake for roughly 50 minutes.
Use a toothpick to make sure the center is fully baked.
Let cool in the loaf pan for 15 to 20 minutes.
Serve warm or at room temperature.
I like to serve with mint ice cream or a fresh dollop of whipped cream with fresh blueberries.
